is give an alternative. we need to start telling the people of america what our health care alternative is and we've yet to do that. >> bob, there's no accountability as we've been saying about other issues because of hyper partisan districts. if i'm a gop member of the house and rail against obama care and say let's defund the government, et cetera, et cetera, and maybe public surveys across the country say that individual is out of step, chances are they're not out of step in their own district. >> i think that's true. one of the problems the republican party has now is that it rode the tea party to power in the house in 2010 and now stuck with all those people. i think john is largely right about what sensible republicans want to do. i'm not sure he's right about the ways out. but you have a whole group of folks who might just take this over the cliff. if boehner holds to the rule that he las to have a majority of the majority before he'll bring anything to the floor, you might just have a government shutdown. and sensible people in the republican party like john brabender, carl row

for president obama in 2008 the first time with the sincere expectation his election would make america more popular around the globe. that hasn't happened. why? >> it hasn't happened. the president said he was going to remake america's image in the world. i think a lot of people thought because he did have a charismatic personality, certainly the president himself believes himself to be charismatic, he was going to be able to win more friends for america, that america would suddenly be beloved by all. what the president seems not to understand, what is most important in terms of a country's standing is that you are respected not necessarily liked. so the president's effort to make everyone like us i think has made us look weak. >> so it's had the opposite effect? >> that's exactly right. what's happened is, the united states is perceived as, first of all, tenuous about making decisions. we had what happened in egypt, for example, the administration was really i think very slow and has still been slow to understand the muslim brotherhood was not democratic. we had the president drawing lines
of the united states of america, and to me, everybody that's willing -- strike that. everybody that's able to make that contribution should be forced to do it. then when the congress says that it's mandatory that we send troops, and these troops may be in harm's way, members of congress will hear from their voters, and their voters would say whether or not in their opinion there should be a red line, or in their opinion, whether or not the united states should attack another country, whether you call it war, limited war, the fact remains we were looking for weapons of mass sdru destructions, we didn't find it. so we know what war is, and people that have been involved in war know that it's hell, and it shouldn't be based on drawing red lines. >> you're obviously being very critical of the president right now for drawing that red line. i want to get reaction from your colleague, republican congressman peter king of long island. he's the chairman of the house subcommittee on counterterrorism -- counterintelligence and terrorism. this is a statement. i'll read it to you, congressman. presiden

. >> is it likely? >> i don't know the answer to that unfortunately because law enforcement management in america at the federal level is a disaster. >> do you agree with that, mitch? that's a pretty big statement. >> those are strong words for somebody who used to be a u.s. attorney. he outranks me. i'm not going to try to take that one out. >> you must be right. possible certainly isn't a lot of support for the federal prosecutions that we have in this country. >> i have great respect for the agents and the u.s. attorneys around the country who do a very difficult job. i was a u.s. attorney, i was an independent counsel. i've had a lot of experience. but i'm going to tell you something, federal government has gotten too big, federal law enforcement agencies have gotten too big. they are manageable. nobody know what is they're doing. look at the latest story about how the dea is providing information to the nsa interc t intercepts and are being told to lie to federal judges about it. you cannot have law enforcement functioning where they are told it's okay to lie to a federal judge about how a

. >> reporter: america macabre and gold. what is interesting about the trade today, we see gold for december delivery settling about $28. 1,361 or thereabouts. the physical market, the delivery there is really tight. it big asian demand, but what we want to return to is what is going on with the paper trades in the exchange-rate as products in gold, down about $58 billion so far this year. it has been on a rocket ride since december 2008. then it went up 71,894 in july and august of 2011. that starts coming back down this year. the cftc was really clear that the commodities futures trading commission has data on the long positions, the bullish bets on gold. they sort of mirror what is going on with a hedge fund guys. the bullish bets for the long positions have been cut by 70%. that is a big number. 70 percent cut again in the futures and options on the net loss position in gold futures delivery. want to give you one final newsbreak. breaking news coming out. forbes magazine is telling the math on john paulson potential hedge fund losses, they are telling $740 million is what forbes magazine
written by republicans post reconstruction. so to not be there in that moment to look america in the eye and complete that leap, that forward progress for the american people, and to say that the african-american community, that we have made missteps in the last 50 years, but we stand here united with you in the journey forward in the life and times of dr. king. >> you're wonderful to say this to be honest about your party, but it wasn't just one or two people. >> no, none of them. >> the day two stories on yesterday's story on the march in washington commemoration of course noted there were no republican elected officials on the steps of the lincoln memorial yesterday. "the washington post" headlines says republicans absent from march on washington. a headline of "the wall street journal" reads at 50th anniversary of march, no gop speakers. interesting point here. for evidence of the shift over the years, let's take a look. let's take a look now at the relationship between the republican party and african-american voters. consider this example. contained neatly in two generations of the
about the campaign. called "collision 2012, obama versus romney and the future of elections in america." the pendulum is swinging in the republican party now. will they try another establishment type like romney or dole or mccain or christie or jeb bush, or will the party go for one of its tea party heroes like rand paul? here with me now is the author of the great book "collision 2016." dan, let's talk about what you call the subterranean campaign of 2012 and what it offers us in the future. >> we think of the campaign as the campaign we all cover all the time. everything we talk about, every utterance, every gaffe, every debate, every movement. and that's part of politics and in many ways the interesting and enjoyable part of politics, but it's not necessarily the decisive part of politics. there are important and underlying powerful forces that affect every campaign. in 2012, one was the economy. would it be just good enough to allow president obama to win re-election or bad enough to deny re-election. another was voter anger. which direction would it go? a third was the deep red/bl
by 3.4%. it was hit by natural catastrophes, bad weather essentially, in north america. but also in europe. net profit missing expectations for the second quarter, and companies also pretty cautious about its outlook. last but not least, i want to show you what is happening in the currency space. sterling dollar at a two-month high, sitting at 155.78. getting closer and closer to that 156 level. this is on the back of better -- much stronger than expected retail sales for the month of july. certainly benefitting from that heat wave we have been seeing in the uk. euro dollar pretty resilient at 132.82, back below the 133 level. and dollar yen seeing a little bit of softness at 98.07. this is because the finance minister in japan pretty much quashed hopes of that cut in the corporate tax rate and this is what the markets had been hoping for. so we are seeing some yen strength. and on the back of that, we are seeing declines, pretty big ones, actually, in the nikkei 225. back over to you guys. >> thanks very much, carolin. becky, are you still looking? >> looking for some of these.
countries, north ameri america, northern europe. emerging markets continue to struggle. overall, again, i think we're seeing a near-term issue. but going forward, i think you're going to be really happy with this company and i think over the long term over the next year or two i think you're going see pretty solid and strong growth. >> all right, jim channing sticking with his shares. we watch them down about 7%. moving on now to major news, president obama making a statement moment ace go on egypt. he said the u.s. will cancel joint military exercises with egypt. to help us understand this, john harwood joins us live now from washington with more. john? >> kelly, it was a minimalist response by the president. you had some people including former advisers of his own saying that the united states should suspend or cut off military aid to the egyptian government. the president did not do that. he said that they were going to cancel those bright star military exercises scheduled for next month and continue to consult with his national security team on other steps. what he was trying to do wa
? is this the beginning of the big correction? according to a conversation i had with mcneil curry of bank of america and merrill lynch on futures now, he's saying the yield could go as high as 3% and with that shift we'll see more volatility and potential downside for stocks. >> jackie, thank you very much. let me turn back to you, david. if i'm reading you correctly it's basically you may think that we're going to churn a little bit. may have bumpy times and basically the market will be all right. jackie just talked about some of the sectors doing well and not. if i buy your overall thesis, what sectionors do you like best right now? >> tyler, we like two sectors, tech and financials. in terms of technology, it's been a laggard this year. i think what people have maybe lost site of a little bit is that global profits have not grown in almost two years. u.s. companies have grown earnings, but outside the u.s. it's been a weaker story. that's really weighed on enterprise tech spending. as the global economy recovers we should see a better profit environment for non-u.s. companies. tech companies shou
is destroying the starnt of living of middle class america, destroying their wages and yes, prices go up. look at oil companies. i know a lot of oil stocks and oil companies aren't making a lot of money. look at oil stock s going up. $100 a barrel is not high enough for the oil company toes economically replace depleting reserves. oil prices are much too cheap. inflation driving up the cost of exploring for oil. oil needs to be $150 to $200 a barrel for the oil companies to make decent profits. >> just saying, why is it, if you're saying oil is going to $200, do the four contract reflect an oil price lower than where we are said to? >> the consensus is wrong. wrong about a lot of things. the consensus is wrong about gold. about the bond market. remember what people thought about internet stocks in 1999? or about real estate in 2007? whmp you have a consensus, it's generally wrong. so i'm not looking at what most people think is going to happen to the price of oil. i'm looking at what i believe is going to happen to the price of oil and i think i'm a better barometer than just the consensus opi
